Conduct Mayoral Sacrificial Duties In The Shrouded Isle

Sate the blood-hunger

I'm not sure what's going on in The Shrouded Isle [official site] but that's why I'm so intrigued. Just look at it. What's that all about? According to Steam, you take up the role of mayor of a seaside village. Sounds friendly enough. I wonder what kind of duties I'll have there -- oh, wait. It looks like I'll need to "sate the blood-hunger of gods sleeping beneath the waves." Well, consider my interest piqued.

It turns out that Kitfox Games' eerie, heavily stylized project has five families competing for power as storms roll in and the ocean becomes ever furious. It's up to you to make sure everyone is properly taken care of, of course, but it seems someone (or multiple someones) will be sacrificed to make sure things can stay "peaceful." Or some such.

Unfortunately, The Shrouded Isle isn't available until February 2017. But you can have a look at the trailer above and evaluate whether its heady decisions are ones you want to take part in ahead of its release. As for me? Yes. They are. Very much so.
